ADVANCED  * * *  precision soldering required

Projects 10 - 13 are constructed on track board.

Precision soldering is essential for this group of kits. Some of the components are close together and great care is needed to complete the project successfully.  It is recommended that you try one of the easier projects above if you have never soldered before.

Projects Overview

The projects are designed to be made by someone with little or no experience of electronics and soldering.  Completion of a project is intended to be both challenging and enjoyable!


There are currently 15 projects in the range at three skill levels: BASIC, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED

Some projects use foam board as a base. Other projects are made using track board (also known as Veroboard). Please click on either the image or on the Projects drop-down menu for further details about each project.


BASIC   *   soldering not essential 

Projects 1 - 6, 14 and 15 are constructed on foam board. Project 1 is the easiest kit to make on foam board. Soldering is not essential for this group of kits as connections between components can be made by simply twisting wires together. However, soldered joints make better electrical connections.

INTERMEDIATE  * *  soldering required

Projects 7, 8 and 9 are constructed on track board. Project 7 is the easiest kit to make on track board.

Soldering is essential for this group of kits. The components are not too close together but careful soldering is needed to complete the project successfully.
